Question: How careful should you be on the internet?

You've got to read this article if you haven't heard about this: http://www.pluggedin.com/upfront/2010/learninglessonsfromjessislaughter.aspx

And you can watch the original video too on youtube, if you want. But he's right: "Asking the internet for mercy is like asking the IRS for a 50% discount."

This article raises a lot of questions: and seemingly obvious answers. How careful are you on the internet?

I don't have a facebook, twitter, or youtube account, but I can relate to not being careful enough on the computer. I've got my name on here, but I don't post pictures of my face. Some of you don't use your real names, nicknames, or even names at all! Some of you post first, last names, and photos. It all depends on how comfortable you are with the internet. Remember when you posts something for the internet, you're posting it for the world to see.


And you have to be careful what you say, because your words can be taken completely out of context sometimes, and you can't delete it. I try to be as careful as I can on here and other places, with no bad grammar or bad language. It's tough though-my reputation went down several notches unintentionally on a certain site(eyebrows, eyebrows.) and I've even lost followers here!

Have you ever had any internet mess-ups or misunderstandings? (Hopefully not on Jessi's level, though.) How careful are you on the world's biggest playground? (I'm still trying to figure out how to show you a picture of my Barriss costume without showing a picture of my face.)

  1. Hey, I like the new background. I'm not as careful about my real name as I should be- if you keep your eyes open you can probably find it- but please don't!!! :) I don't really have a problem stating my hometown or showing my face, but beyond that (real names, more specific locations, etc) I try to keep my mouth shut.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
